What is better than a dozen eggs?
A DOZEN CHICKS!
I’ve wanted backyard chickens forEVER and we rented a farm in Colorado so DUH.
There are like four or five barns in my backyard. I’m turning one of them into a super fly chicken coop.
And I better hurry because LOOK: CHICKS!!
One of these chicks is not like the other, tho.
Ok, the stuffed chick doesn’t actually live in the little brooder thingy. I totally staged that picture. But. Babystar’s stuffed chick was the most expensive of all the baby chicks we bought at $6.99.
OMG you guys, she named it Eggy. With no prompting (that I know of). What a great name!
Also, I feel like I need a subblog (is that a word?) about the cost of backyard chickens. Then when they start laying eggs I can calculate the cost per egg. Jeez, I need to calm down. Just kidding, I love this plan! Off to find my farm store receipts. BRB.
RAISING BABYSTAR: $26,863.79

Yay!!!! CONGRATULATIONS! I love my chickens so much. They coming running toward me every time I open the door, and they look like fat, friendly little velociraptors. Enjoy!
It took me years but I finally figured out to turn off the heat lamp for a moment to get pix of the baby chicks. Congrats!
Oh yeah. DUH. I’ll update with the quickly growing chickie pics soon!! 🐣🐥
